Ki Teitzei - The Weekly Maqam

The Weekly Maqam

In the Weekly Maqam, Sephardi Jews each week base the songs of the services on the content of that week's parshah. For parshah Ki Teitzei, Sephardi Jews apply Maqam Saba. Saba, in Hebrew, literally means "army.” It is appropriate here, because the parshah commences with the discussion of what to do in certain cases of war with the army.
